Oxfordshire Statement of Cooperation

For all local planning authorities, county councils and a number of other public bodies in England the ‘duty to cooperate’ set out in the Localism Act requires cooperation on issues of common concern in order to develop sound local plans. As part of implementing the Duty to Cooperate all Oxfordshire authorities have signed up to a joint Oxfordshire Statement of Cooperation.

The Oxfordshire Statement of Cooperation outlines matters on which the six local authorities in Oxfordshire will continue to cooperate. In particular, the document sets out how the parties involved will manage the outcomes of the Strategic Housing Market Assessment, should any of the Local Planning Authorities in Oxfordshire not be able to meet their full objectively assessed housing need.
